Erik, you have ubuntu installed. Dit you install the gramps-help package. See
You need to install gramps-help_2.2.4-1ubuntu1_all.deb too.
Did you do that?
If you did, can you give the exact error message? I suppose it is not 'Gnome
could not find the browser'.

To unzip, you need to be able to log in on with your service provide. I do not
know if gnome has a standard tool for that. Normally in a console you can do
telnet: 'telnet user@...', which works for some providers (those with
You can always install putty: sudo apt-get install putty. Then putty is a
available from the menu, and you can log into a machine with telnet or ssh,
depending on what your provider allows. Putty is easy as you can store
To unzip: see http://www.aota.net/Telnet/unzip.php4, for the commands

Yes, the help text mentions it, but not too exact. You have to make an
note. The title field you can give something like 'footnote my website'. It is
what is visible in the note's tab that is shown on the website. Note that you
must use html tags and such for markup, so <b>bold</b>.
I find it easy to give some pointers to people in the database on the starting
page. To see how to do that, open my page:
and in the browser, press CTRL-U, to view the source. The paragraph tags
(<p>..</p>) are added by gramps automatically, the rest you need to do
As you are the Dutch translator, you can see that 'Begin' is a bit
funny in the
webpage, a webpage is collection without real begin. Perhaps Start is better.

Don should answer that. The link http://library.gramps-project.org appears to
work, so I guess the manual has wrong link?

For me all just works. The dutch gramps.xml is not generated on running
so it is not available in GRAMPS, and hence it is normal that the english help
file is seen. If the make file is updated to make the dutch gramps.xml, you
should see the manual in dutch after install of the manual.
